I emailed Susan Daniels and offered her a chance to debate Frank Arduini (Historian Dude) on Reality Check Radio. The subject of the debate would be her claims that she has evidence that President Obama used a “stolen social security number” and that his selective service registration card, a copy of which was obtained via a FOIA request during the George W. Bush administration, is a forgery.
I sent the following email to Ms. Daniels yesterday:
I previously offered you an interview on my radio program, Reality Check Radio. I would like to renew that offer with a chance to debate Frank Arduini (Historian Dude) as well. The debate would be structured with timed opening statements by each and timed periods for interrogatories. Time limits for each will be enforced as strictly as possible. I suggest that it run for an hour to 1-1/4 hours with time for caller questions afterwards. The show would be two hours.
If you are interested I will arrange for a date and agreed upon conditions between Mr. Arduini and you.
I look forward to your response. I will also be posting this challenge on my blog.
I thought of the debate after reading Susan Daniels’ article on her losing court case filed in Ohio in 2012. She titled the article Politics: A Two-Headed Rattlesnake
She was not happy that the judge ignored her “evidence”:
I used to believe we had a two-party political system. I was delusional. I got a good smack of reality on September 4, 2012, as I stood in front of a Republican judge in a rural county of Ohio. The treatment would have been no different with a Democrat on the bench. I was there because I had filed a lawsuit against the Republican Ohio Secretary of State, John Husted, in an effort to keep Barack Obama off the ballot in November 2012. http://www.scribd.com/doc/122020325/
There is a good reason why I filed it.
I believe that Barack Obama is a fraud and a liar. I am neither. I discovered the truth about Obama five years ago as I was investigating his questionable background for a client. I am a licensed private investigator in Ohio and have been for more than twenty years. Of the approximately eight hundred investigative companies here, a couple dozen are owned by women. I belong to that small group.
I also belong to the subsets that include widows, septuagenarians, mothers of seven, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, holders of master’s degrees, paralegals, notary publics, those of Irish ancestry and my favorite of all: certified write-in candidates for President of the United States. But I digress.
As a licensed investigator I have access to information that others don’t. As I began my investigation into the background of Barack Obama, I expected to find nothing. After all, he was already installed as president, even though never vetted by anyone.
Mr. Arduini schooled Susan in the comments on the article. This was the exchange:
I have a copy of Chiang Kai-Shek’s birth certificate showing he was born in HI. I think we all know he was born in China.
No you don’t.
You have a copy of Sun Yat-sen’s birth certificate. They are rather spectacularly two different people, and I dare say that confusing two different people just because they were both Chinese does not reflect well on your competence as a Private Investigator.
Sun Yat-sen’s certificate is the one I referred to as being issued 110 years ago. It was issued in 1904… at a time when birth certificates were not even required in the US. It was issued seven years before Hawaii passed what would turn out to be the most stringent requirements in the US for obtaining a birth certificate, and 55 years before Hawaii even became a State.
Because of one other key and obvious detail the certificate also fails to meet the State Department standards for proof of citizenship. It was not issued within one year of his birth (missing that hurdle by 28 years).
Donna Mohler’s claim was that “Back in 1959, 1960, 1961 ANYONE could get a B.C from Hawaii!” If you actually intend to defend her, a BC issued in 1904 misses by more than a half century.
I don’t expect to hear back from Ms. Daniels. Like all Birther investigators she knows she cannot defend her conclusions when challenged with facts. She instead wants to keep up the smear campaign against a President she dislikes and do it in controlled environments like Family Security Matters and with friendly Birther radio hosts like Peter Boyles. The last person she would wish to engage in debate is Frank Arduini.
The offer stands regardless. Will she go where no Birther dares to tread? Does she have the temerity to defend her claims? We shall see.
